( applause ) >> brown: and the trend line seemed promising, as well. since july, the economy has added an average of 173,000 jobs per month, up from just 67,000 a month in the spring. at the same time, though, the unemployment rate ticked up a tenth of a point in october to 7.9% as more

get to us, we ask you to come and deliver your supplies. one thing we truly need, we need more fuel. >> ben, even if fema absolutely does its job, and there's every indication it is, there could still be images of desperate people come monday, tuesday. i know you'll want to say this is not political, but let me ask you about the implications. is there a possible downside here for the president? >> you know, the president is on this day and night. the administration is on this day and night. he put politics aside and ensured that federal resources were deployed to support this state's response efforts and to ensure that all the victims were taken care of. those resources have been deployed. he's doing everything he can to ensure that the requests from states are met. while he'll be on the trail today, he's still going to be focused on this and going to ensure that the states receive everything that they've requested and everything that they've needed. this is one of the worst storms in our memories. the president's going to make sure that the federal government is very focused on thi
